Collective Consciousness in Cyber Space

Never before have we had the opportunity to connect like we do now. Not just by means of cell phones, TV, and the internet. This connection relates more to the interconnection of people through different channels, mediums, services, forums, and social interaction in cyber space. We are linking, feeding, streaming, commenting, blogging, reading, listening, and watching real-time news, events, public opinions, and relevance form simultaneously and sequentially. Everyone has their own ideas, opinions, thoughts, and preferences. These intangible agencies are being combined into one Collective Consciousness in Cyber Space. With social bookmaking, tagging, and ranking one can see the importance or relevance to the Collective Consciousness. Some interpretations, outcomes or results may be a bit skewed and off the mark, but this is the nature of imperfection an attribute we all share. This author will not suggest that the Collective Consciousness is a form of life, but in that sense it is a combined cyber extension of our biological brainwaves. See the Wiki for an example of the Collective Consciousness and definitions of words in this weblog.

Wow, this is a pretty deep thought. I read an article somewhere about what a collective intellect can do in comparison to an individual intellect. In short, the results of the study showed that when people basically put their minds together, the results are much more successful than when one individual works fervently toward the end.

So, anyway, I found this blog through BlogExplosion.com, and I've been reading a plethora of different persepctives. It is such an amazing thing that we can really dig deeper into the human existence in such a tangible and fast-served sort of way.

I think that many people forget about the fact that cyberspace is maintained by real people. I often hear people cringing at those who are often engaging in online forums, chats, and bloggerdom. They say things like, "but you should interact with real people." They are. In a mucn more cohesive way than many others are doing.

We are opening ourselves up for such a wider perspective.

Anyway, nice blog!

Dev
